Collection Care Administrator Apprentice


Opportunity type:Fixed-term, Full-time 

Working hours:36 

Salary:£20,755 per annum 


Closing date:13 August 2021 at midnight 

Tate is offering a unique and exciting apprenticeship opportunity within our Collection Care Division. As a member of the Planning and Administration Team, the Collection Care Administrator Apprentice will carry out training on and off the job to achieve the Level 3 Business Administrator apprenticeship as part of your role. You will develop knowledge, skills and behaviours that are essential to help you effectively work with other Administrator colleagues to deliver efficient and effective administrative, financial and staff support services to the Collection Care division. As an apprentice you will spend 20% of your total time completing training as part of your apprenticeship. Each Administrator leads on a particular aspect of the service and/or takes responsibility for specific projects and initiatives across the division’s range of activities. Specific responsibilities may vary over time. All members of the team provide cover for each other to ensure a high standard of customer service is maintained.

Government rules for all levy-funded apprenticeships at Level 3 and above state that an apprentice must achieve a Level 2 certificate in English and Maths (GCSE grade 9 to 4 or A* to C) before the apprentice takes their final apprenticeship assessment, known as the ‘end-point assessment.’ Therefore, as part of the enrolment process for your apprenticeship, you will need to participate in an online assessment provided by the apprenticeship training provider, which will identify which level of English and Maths you currently function at. If you have no prior GCSE or Functional Skills certificates of the required grades/ levels, and you score below a Level 2 in your initial assessment, your training provider will support you to achieve a Level 2 before the end of your apprenticeship and the learning for this will be incorporated in your overall training.

We want to offer this opportunity to people who would benefit most from the Apprenticeship scheme at Tate both in terms of furthering their personal or professional development and who, in return, will bring a new and different perspective to our work. Tate aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds, and these opportunities are for people to learn and develop new skills. We particularly encourage applications from black, ethnic minority, and disabled applicants as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector.

This position is offered on a fixed-term contract of 18 months.
